CORPORATE AND INTERNATIONAL TAX LAW FOR SMALL BUSINESS &  MIDDLE MARKET COMPANIES

We provide comprehensive tax,  business consulting and legal services to corporations, partnerships, privately held businesses, multinational corporations and individuals. Our focus is providing corporate and tax counsel to small, privately held companies as well as middle market corporations. We routinely handle a variety of issues in tax planning, ranging from advising corporations, partnerships and the owners of closely-held corporations about minimizing their overall tax bill, advising entrepreneurs about the choice of entity for new companies, oversight and coordination of state and federal tax returns, developing and implement tax strategies and special projects, advising on the tax issues in business transactions, planning tax-efficient corporate structures, as well as executing business transactions such as mergers & acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, and joint ventures.


Simplifying Tax

Business operations today are complex. Tax rules and regulations are even more complicated. As a tax attorney, my approach is to provide, simple, practical tax strategies. I identify simple tax solutions to minimize taxation, and create efficiencies in business operations and sophisticated transactions, such as mergers & acquisitions.

I regularly advise national and multinational corporations how to minimize state, federal and global taxes through tax-efficient corporate structures, and help entrepreneurs properly form tax-efficient companies and partnerships.
